CHATTANOOGA, TENN. - Crye-Leike Real Estate Services congratulates Realtor Erin Farris, an affiliate of the company's East Brainerd branch office, on being selected for the Leadership Chattanooga Class of 2021-2022. Leadership Chattanooga is a program held through the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce that allows members to connect with the community, while learning about what it means to be a leader.

Throughout a 10 month period, members will participate in education-related projects, police ride-alongs and more to graduate with a fresh understanding of the community's strengths and challenges, as well as learn how to be a part of the solutions.

Farris, a Realtor for six years, is the only member of the local real estate industry to be selected for this year's program. Her passion for helping her community shines through her career, and she is looking forward to this exciting opportunity.

"Leadership Chattanooga is a program you have to be nominated for," said Farris. "I'm not sure who nominated me, but I am so grateful! My passion in life is to help others, which is why I started my real estate career to begin with. As a Realtor, I feel like I have a level of responsibility to be aware of what is going on in my community and to give back whenever the opportunity presents itself. I look forward to this program and everything I will gain from it!"

Farris, licensed in Tennessee and Georgia, is a member of the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) and the Greater Chattanooga Association of REALTORS (GCAR). Outside of real estate, Farris was a member of the Chattanooga Protege Class of 2019-2020 and currently serves as a board member for Young Professionals Chattanooga (YPC).
